Seven public access areas offer bank and boat access to the lake.  [Lay Lake. http://www.outdooralabama.com/fishing/freshwater/where/reservoirs/lay/, 01/26/2010]

Since being impounded in 1914 by the Alabama Power Company, Lay Lake is best known for its spotted bass and largemouth bass fishing. A high quality largemouth bass and spotted bass fishery exists at Lay Reservoir. Largemouth bass up to 18-inches are abundant and with moderate numbers of larger bass. Spotted bass up to 18-inches are very abundant with moderate numbers of larger fish. The best fishing for largemouth bass occurs in creeks and shallow water sloughs. Anglers targeting spotted bass should fish riverine portions of the lake.  [Lay Lake. http://www.outdooralabama.com/fishing/freshwater/where/reservoirs/lay/, 01/26/2010]

Crappie 9- to 12-inches are moderately abundant and are found throughout the lake associated with woody cover and weed beds. In 1993, a 9-inch minimum length limit was implemented on crappie to help protect younger fish. Anglers have supported this length limit overwhelmingly. Bream fishing is also very popular in Lay Lake. Bream offer a good summer fishery in creeks with woody cover and around weed beds. The best fishing for crappie and bream occurs in creeks and shallow water sloughs.  [Lay Lake. http://www.outdooralabama.com/fishing/freshwater/where/reservoirs/lay/, 01/26/2010]

When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows.
